ENERGY STAR for small business
It's possible for an average commercial building to save up to 30 percent on energy bills with no-cost actions, strategic investment, and smart operations and maintenance. These savings can be reinvested in your priorities for growth - inventory, technology, advertising, and competitive salaries and benefits. The comfort, functionality, and appearance of the facility can be improved.
You can become an ENERGY STAR partner at no cost or reporting obligation and use the logo that more than 90 percent of American households recognize. ENERGY STAR tools, training, and technical support can help your business be an environmental leader and help you communicate this to your customers and clients.
